Assuming that the "old system" refers to what we now know as squeaksource.com,
then there is no real repository for the sources. It basically exists as a
long running image that has survived into the modern era, with some workspaces
that explain how the image originally came into existance, and how it has
subsequently been maintained in the intervening decades.

The source.squeak.org image is of newer vintage, and it is closely related
to (same as?) the personalsqueaksource version.
